VS 2017
.Net 4.72
I'm writing a WPF app that instantiates a class like this:
public class MyClass : INotifyPropertyChanged
    private string currentFile;
    private int    fileCount  ;
    public string CurrentFile 
        get {return this.currentFile;} 
        set {if(value!=this.currentFile){this.currentFile=value;this.NtfyPropChange();}}
    public int FileCount
        get {return this.fileCount;} 
        set {if (value != this.fileCount){this.fileCount=value;this.NtfyPropChange();}}

    public MyClass()
        this.CurrentFile = string.Empty;
        this.FileCount   = 0;

    public void DoSomethingWithFiles()
        string[] files = Directory,.GetFiles(@"c:\mypath", *.*);
        foreach(string file in files)
            this.CurrentFile = file;
            this.FileCount += 1;

In the XAML, I'm binding like this:
<TextBlock Text="{Binding x:Name="textblockCurrentFile" Path=myObject.CurrentFile}"/>
<TextBlock Text="{Binding x:Name="textblockFileCount" Path=myObject.FileCount}"/>

In my INotifyPropertyChanged-derived form, I have set the DataContext, instantiated MyObject, and when I inspect everything under the debugger, the two MyObject properties in question are being updated as expected as the method loop proceeds. In fact, if I hook the MyObject.PropertyChanged event in the form code, it is indeed called for every property change event.


The form controls that are bound to these properties don't update when the property values change.

The MyObject class is created on the UI thread, and the method is not, itself, being executed in a different thread.

What am I dong wrong (or not doing at all)?

I tried doing this in the PropertyChanged event handler in the form, but it didn't fix my problem:

private void Tfs_PropertyChanged(object sender, System.ComponentModel.PropertyChangedEventArgs e)
    Dispatcher.BeginInvoke(new Action(() => 
        this.textblockCurrentFile.Text = this.myObject.CurrentFile;
        this.textblockFileCount.Text = this.myObject.FileCount.ToString();
